Window Feeder Selection

Window Feeder Selection

If you want to get up close and personal with the birds in your yard, a window feeder is your best bet. A window feeder can be attached to a window by Velcro or suction cups, or placed inside a windowsill; its major benefit is the intimacy it adds to the bird watching experience.

A window feeder often comes with a one-way mirror, which allows you to get inches away from your feathered friends without disturbing them. For this reason, some bird lovers mount window feeders near a sink or personal computer to provide a break from work. A window bird feeder is also ideal for poor weather, as it allows you to observe birds from the comfort of your home. And remember, like all products we sell, every window feeder comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee, so you can be sure you'll be satisfied with your purchase.

This platform feeder is a replacement for a cheap acrylic feeder we had for a few years. I love the size and it is perfect for our sunroom window. I like that the cover is separate and we have put a fair distance between them so the larger birds are able to land on the platform and can be seen up close. If you saw my review of the cover, you know that both the platform and cover survived our historic Colorado bomb cyclone blizzard event a few weeks ago. Even during the storm, birds were able to have enough protection to eat from the platform. I hope you enjoy this product as much as we do.

The only way to squirrel proof window bird feeders is to make a crossed hatched and bowed out metal cage around the feeder.(bowing out helps keep their tongue and fingers aesy from the seed.

Opus Dine Around Window Bird Feeder

I have had several window mount bird feeders in the past. This one is the best! The attachment design is perfect and you really can see the birds all the way around!

I love this feeder. It attaches easily to a window and is easy to remove the tray to refill the birdseed. The cardinals love it -- but I've also had woodpeckers and bluebirds. Because it is clear, it is so easy to see the birds while they eat -- it really is a clever idea!

Maybe they should put the height on the unit, not just the length!!! Its about 4/5 inches in height.

We love it... and more importantly, our bird friends do, too! It brings them right into our living room!

Small birds will use it. Problem is only small birds. It is too small for Blue jays an Cardinals. It is too big for Pigeons and Doves which I am fine with, Sparrows fine.

This is a very good feeder. Five Stars. It's very user friendly: simple to slide off and on the suction. The birds also seem to like it as well. The two little foot stands are also very good as the birds use it frequently.
